Happy Thanksgiving! On Wednesday, November 18, PLA students helped serve meals to the clients of the Greater Boston Food Bank. In partnership with the American Red Cross, our students volunteered their day to serve more than 600 Thanksgiving Day meals to the less fortunate. This was a very moving and eye-opening experience for our students and staff. Many of our students have faced difficult challenges in their own lives, but working with the clients that frequent the Food Bank really helps put things into perspective. Principal Seith Bedard said, "We are all very proud of the service our students provided. I would also like to thank all of the parents for getting up early and dropping your son or daughter off. I understand that you all work and are very busy. Your efforts are very much appreciated."
